I should be telling her the truth about me…instead I break her with lies.

my review

4 Stars

Broken by Lies by Rebecca Shea was an intense ride.  The book starts with a tragedy and never stops moving forward – it’s a fast paced storyline.  I thought it was suspenseful and often times deceptive. What you think you know or conclusions that you draw – turn out to be completely incorrect. It leaves you feeling unsure of who you should trust or fear.

Alex is immediately bewitched by Emilia – to her beauty and to the purity of her character. You quickly believe in the developing relationship between Alex and Emilia – even though it starts unconventionally – because their chemistry and passion is off the charts.  More than anything though, Alex wants to help and protect Emilia even though his world is the most dangerous place for her.

But you want this romance and Alex for Emilia.  Her life has been so difficult and she just needs something to go right.  She’s very innocent and could be annoying but I liked her character.  She endeared herself to me and I was rooting for her to get a happy ending.

Their romance is not without hiccups and the book ends with a cliffhanger.  There are several twists and turns that make the story come alive and that make you intrigued to read the next chapter. Its exciting and entertaining. I genuinely like the plot and truly enjoyed reading Broken by Lies.  I would highly recommend it.
